    We love you, Ann!

    I knew I wanted to hire Ann about 5 minutes after meeting her. She is so friendly! She was super helpful during the ceremony planning process and gave us great suggestions as to how to keep our ceremony special but quick (we got married outside in June...). We would recommend her to anyone!

    Sarah,
    It was a pleasure to work with you and Ben. The Highgrove Estate was the perfect place for your wedding. It was warm but everyone was happy to be there for you. I thought the sand ceremony was beautiful. Thank you for inviting me to share your special day.

    Just what we wanted

    Ann was absolutely amazing! She was so kind and listened to what we wanted for our wedding. Her performance was spectacular making our day even more special. She recommended the sand ceremony which was perfect for our big blended family.

    I enjoyed the wedding at your home surrounded by your family and friends. The kids were wonderful and I thought the sand ceremony with 7 colours was stunning. Thank you for inviting me to be part of your special day. I could see a lot of love in your home when I was there.

    Put me at ease

    Ann was a great choice to officiate our wedding. Our first meeting was great and put our minds at ease about the process. She was open to including anything that we wanted in the ceremony. She was very responsive to all questions and always answered back the same day (sometimes within the hour). She has a very laid back approach which was perfect for us!

    Kelly,
    I loved officiating your wedding at the Arboretum- what a perfect setting. You and Tom were so easy to work with, it was a pleasure for me. Ella was great in the sand ceremony especially for a child so young. I think she enjoyed being included.

    Highly Recommend

    We highly recommend Ann as a wedding officiant. From the first time we met her and throughout the entire process she made my husband and I feel very comfortable and was easy to open up to. She customized the entire wedding ceremony to fit our personal love story. Despite some unexpected harsh weather that threw a wrench into our plans, Ann kept things calm and light, kept the ceremony flowing, and ensured everyone remembered what the day was all about. We had a fantastic wedding and Ann was a big part of it.

    Excellent addition to our wedding day

    Can’t recommend Ann more. She was both professional and kind. She walked us through all we needed prior to our big day so we were well prepared. She exudes a confident & loving energy that we all felt. It was truly like having a family member perform the ceremony.

    Intimate Backyard Ceremony

    Ann was a pleasure to work with. She was attentive and responded quickly to any questions we had. She has a warm and calm personality that keeps you at ease.

    Ann is Awesome!

    Ann was awesome! She was very professional, kind, and detailed. She wrote a beautiful ceremony for us that really captured our story and our personalities. I could not have asked for a better officiant and would recommend her a million times over. She was always available, and timely with responses when needed.

    Truly Joyous Ceremony

    Ann was very thorough, knowledgeable, professional, and dependable. We got the personalized ceremony package, and she worked with us throughout the editing process to fit our needs. We had unorthodox wants and needs, and she was willing to accommodate us. On the day of we had lots of fun and she made sure that all the legal requirements were fulfilled. She is very amicable and our ceremony was truly joy filled!

    Ann is one of a kind! She is bubbly, sweet and caring to your needs for a beautiful wedding ceremony! She is attentive on every detail you want in your ceremony. If you’re a nervous bride like myself she has the most calming vibe. If it wasn’t for her reassuring me I would of been a nervous wreck.

    Mrs. Ann was more than we could have ever asked for. She wrote the most beautiful ceremony. She honored all of our requests and even suggested some ideas that we did not think of before.

    We were honored to have Ann officiate our wedding. Not only was she willing to meet us a few times ahead of time to practice and review the ceremony, she was flexible when Hurricane Florence came through town and we had to reschedule our wedding at the last minute! She will forever be part of the memories of our wedding and we are thrilled that she was able to bless our marriage. Thank you, Ann!!
